    Per CNN Poll obama foreign policy has hit rock bottom. Only 3 out of ten approve of how he is handling Syria Guess he has got his butt in a crack and does not know what to do. Not doing a very good job of talking his way out of this mess.

    Good thing this is not a Fox Poll or it would not be that high

    "Washington (CNN) – One day before President Barack Obama gives a prime time speech to make his case against Syria, a new national poll indicates the president's approval rating on foreign policy has hit an all-time low. And only three in ten approve of how he is handling Syria.

    But according to a CNN/ORC International survey, the number of Americans who approve of how Obama is handling his job in general remains steady.

    Only four in ten approve of the job Obama is doing on foreign policy, with 57% of those questioned giving the president a thumbs down. The 40% approval rating on foreign policy is Obama's lowest level ever on that issue in CNN polling.

    No worries. After his speech 90% of the media will have that tingly sensation running up their leg....unless the speech lasts too long and then it may be a warm wet sensation running down their leg because they couldn't hold it.

    You really think the media is simply waiting on his speech before they call come out in support of bombing Syria? Somehow I doubt it.

    I disagree. Obama is a lame duck President. There is no reason for the press to stick with him They will turn on him and soon start building up the next great democratic candidate.Then they will point and say see..we are in fact non-partisan.

    Kenneth Gladney, Benghazi, Fast & Furious. No, these are only facts we speak of when it comes to Obama's adoring LMSM protecting him like a lioness does her cubs.

    I was not a fan of Bush's spending nor of his communication skills or unwillingness to "sell" his program. And of course don't blame the housing collapse on Bush.

    That said, Bush is looking damn good in the rear view mirror. The name "Bush" may not be as toxic and radioactive as the name Obama by 2016. Jeb may have a chance...his last name is not Obama.

    And to think this was assumed to be Obama's strength, yet he's making Bush look like JFK. Has he gotten one thing right in FP since he became President?

    Here's what he has done so far in FP:

    1. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's botched "reset" with Russia -- even the "reset button" was improperly labeled, owing to a translation error that substituted the Russian word for "overcharge." The whole reset attempt was, at any rate, the product of wishful thinking. Russia under Vladimir Putin viewed itself as a rival, not an ally, of the United States. Russia even announced its withdrawal from a major arms-control agreement. In fact, although Mitt Romney was mocked for calling Russia our greatest "geopolitical foe" last year, that's looking pretty spot-on today as Putin lines up behind Syrian President Bashar Assad and frustrates the United States in numerous settings across the globe. Not much of a reset here.
    2. Then there's our relationship with the British. Under previous administrations going back to World War II it was a "special relationship." Now it's ... not so special. Even back in 2009, Obama treated the British rudely, leading one British pundit to ask: "Does Obama have it in for Britain?" More recently -- even as British troops were dying alongside Americans in Afghanistan -- Obama snubbed the British by remaining neutral on the Falkland Islands. Well, not quite neutral: In another bout of "smart diplomacy," Obama tried to call the Falklands by their Argentine name -- Las Malvinas -- but blew it, calling them instead the Maldives, an entirely different set of islands located half a world away. Can someone buy this guy a globe?
    3. Now Obama wants to do something about Syria, and -- while the Russians do their best to interfere -- the British have decided that they're not going along this time, thank you. It's the first time a British prime minister has lost a war vote since 1782. Now Obama -- having boxed himself in with his off-the-cuff "red line" remarks from last year -- has changed tack and decided that he, too, will consult Congress after all.
    4. Perhaps he's hoping to lose that vote, as well, so that at least he can blame Congress for whatever happens next. But the real question is how we got in this situation to begin with. And the answer is, through a series of unfortunate decisions ranging from Obama's 2009 Cairo speech, which ignited the Arab Spring uprisings, through the mishandling of Libya and Benghazi, to his unscripted, and unthought-out, "red line" remarks.

    To sum it up,

    If an attack on Syria does come up for a vote I suggest that the Republicans adopt the tactic of Illinois state Senator Barack Obama and simply vote present. Then Obama and the Democrats will own the unintended consequences of his (yuk yuk) "foreign :clown2: policy".

    Perhaps Obama should seek out Jimmy Carter for advice?
